  5. A short searching script in Python

    Recently, I was working with Monte Carlo samples and I noticed a couple of oddities when plotting the mass of the visible decay products of the tau. It turns out that the script wasn’t properly removing unwanted particles (like neutrinos, which should not be visible in the actual detector). As part of the debugging process, I needed a list of particle IDs (since in Monte Carlo you know precisely what kind of particles you are generating and what their properties are) to check what was going on. The problem is that I had dozens of log files containing several thousand lines like this : …
